While looking through one of my older cookbooks last week, I stumbled across a recipe for a breakfast sausage ball that would make for a welcome addition to my brunch menu. I had the few required ingredients on hand and I was in the mood to try something new.
Talk about an easy recipe… 3 ingredients are combined with an optional dash of water to moisten the mix. Adding a side of scrambled eggs, coffee, orange juice and fresh fruit rounded out the meal. This is a plentiful recipe. If you make the full recipe, you’ll have extras to warm up for weekday quick fixes. I throw them in the microwave for 10-20 seconds and they are ready to eat. They freeze well too. A win-win for my busy family!
I’ve include the original recipe link below… along with the adjusted recipe that I am using instead.
Easy Breakfast Sausage Balls
4 cups grated sharp cheddar cheese
3 cups baking mix
1 (1 lb) package ground sausage
Preheat oven to 375 °F. Spray a baking sheet with vegetable oil cooking spray.
Combine all ingredients in a large glass bowl. Mix well with your fingers. The mixture will be very crumbly.
Form into 1 inch balls, squeezing the mixture so it holds together, then rolling it between the palms of your hands to form balls.
Place the balls on the baking sheet. Bake for 18-20 minutes until golden brown. To prevent sticking, move the balls with a spatula halfway through cooking.

I make these and add a dash of garlic powder, diced onion, and diced celery, and use turkey sausage instead of pork. Delicious!

Mahalo, thanks for jogging my memory.
💡 Howz`bout using Hot Italian Sausage and Sharp Provolone Cheese?
Excellent suggestions… I will give them a try! Thanks for your response and enjoy your week! 😊
These look really good! I bet you could take a tortilla or pita, add your scrambled eggs, some spinach, 3 of these, and some hummus to make a great breakfast sandwich!
That sounds delicious… I love all of the suggestions folks send my way when commenting on a recipe. I’ll definitely give it a try!
I’d like to try this for next week. I hope they last until lunch because just by looking at how delish they are, we might have them all in one sitting. Thank you for sharing!
I hope your family enjoyed them!
